DOZENS SIGN-UP FOR MORTGAGE HELP!
On Saturday, September 28, 2013 just two days before the application deadline Genesis and AGORA were able to help 127 homeowners signup for the Illinois Hardest Hit program. These applicants are now in the pipeline to qualify for up to $35,000 in mortgage assistance. They now have until November 2
nd to upload all of their documents into the system to receive funding.
The Illinois Hardest Hit Program offers two types of assistance:
Reinstatement assistance to pay mortgage arrearages, fees, and penalties in full, and 2. Monthly mortgage payment assistance to pay 100% of the mortgage payment owed to the servicer for up to 18 months while the household makes monthly contribution payments to the Illinois Housing Development Authority during their enrollment in the program.
Said Ms. Ruby Johnson, "This event was great and very informative… I just happened to be listing to the Cliff Kelly Show on WVON 1390 and learned about this program for the first time"!
Thanks to the support of the Wintrust Financial Group, Chatham Business Association, Land of Lincoln Health, Respond Now, the Tom Joyner Morning Show and WVON these homeowners have increased their chances of gaining assistance to maintaining their homes. "What’s also great about this effort is that these families are now linked with HUD Certified Housing Counseling Agencies in Genesis and AGORA that will be providing follow-up counseling and services to determine other workable alternatives to foreclosure" said Steeve Kidd, Program Director.
